    Anodizer recomendations

    Hello,
    I am restoring an old yeti arc and was wondering if anyone had recomendations for an anodizer. I assume old parts can be re-anodized as I see quite a few of them on ebay. Thanks in advance.

    I do some ano for new stuff I make. you need to polish the metal, any flaw will be seen if you don't. If you just re-do it it will look ok but have more of a matte finish than shiny. Best to bring a bunch the same color to get a batch price. No steel can be inyour parts so hubs, unless you press the races out will be a no-go.

    Thanks for the input guys. Looking into an ultrasonic cleaner to put the parts into get then cleaned up, I need to figure out what to polish them with, and then send them off. Price is $50 for a bunch of small parts from Danco Anodizing. They were very helpful on the phone. It is more complicated than I thought, but then again nothing is easy. I am thinking it might be good to start with a black batch as it would probably hide the imperfections the best.

    I use Danco and Precision Plating in Anaheim, Ca for the parts I make. Danco is probably the most cost effective, but since I have parts that are longer than 4', which is Danco's limit, I need to use Precision, which can do parts of up to 20'. Both great platers, but it's hard to beat Danco.
